New York

I am so in love with New York City. It is really one of my favorite places ever! And being there at Christmastime was a dream come true. Here is a little insta-recap of some of my favorite things from my birthday getaway:

We took at cab into Manhattan once we arrived and saw those big city lights. 

We ate at The Meatball Shop and followed up dinner with cocktails at Mother's Ruin. Love that place!

We stayed on Bedford in the West Village... the same street that the apartment building from Friends is on. 

Our morning ritual involved a quick stop at Prodigy Coffee

AND... the best bagels I've ever had at Bagels on the Square. 

Stopped through Grand Central Terminal with my love.

I tried on crazy things... like Valentino. This number here made me feel like a rockstar.

Macy's sure does know how to inspire.

I am one happy girl in The Big Apple. Someone pinch me.

This portobello arugula goodness from  may have been my favorite thing.

We were on the 4th row of Thursday night's show with Bill Murray. 

Some tiramisu something from Rocco's...

I love him, and I love this city!

Oh the bagels... 

I stumbled upon DASH and had to go try something on. This fur coat was ridiculous and all kinds of awesome.

We mastered the subway system by day 2. The complexity of it all baffles me... geniuses.

We celebrated my birthday dinner at La Bella Vita Ristorante in Little Italy. 

Stumptown Coffee was the jam.

Rockefeller Center is one magical place!

We took an early ride to Brooklyn and walked the Brooklyn Bridge.  It was cold and foggy but well worth the trek. 

We stayed with 2 girls that I found through We actually had mutual friends, so it wasn't as sketchy as it sounds. One of my weekend roomies works for Shoshanna... so fun. I dragged my husband to this Lucky shopping event in Soho where my girl Samantha was. 

We barely made our flight. Sad to say goodbye to New York & very eager to go back in 2013!
Hope you enjoyed that little glimpse of the trip. There was tons more that we did, but how could I ever cover it all?!
